Public library a way to integration (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this thesis is to investigate how a public library, as an information center and a meeting place, may contribute to bring Swedes and immigrants closer to one another, which is a prerequisite for integration. To realize this purpose, I have asked three questions. Which conditions and demands are stated in central documents for libraries immigrant activities? What do the library called Biblioteket Västers multicultural activities contain? How does the library conceive its object to strengthen immigrants identity so that its activities, contribute to integration? As method, I have used hermeneutics, which means that I have interpreted the thesis material. In the theory I have described relevant literature and confirmed the importance of identity, language and the majoritys acknowledgement for integration. In empirical, I have studied Biblioteket Västers multicultural activities and integration program. Furthermore I have performed interviews with one politician, one culture enthusiast and four immigrants. The conclusion I have made from the interviews and the theory is that public libraries are important institutes and that their activities contribute to integration.
